CLASP is a legal aid clinic where Osgoode Hall Law School students work under the supervision of lawyers.


CLASP is dedicated to achieving social justice through three principles:

  • Education: the opportunity for current law students to acquire and apply knowledge in a diverse clinical setting, which develops their skills and perspectives to become critical and reflective practitioners.
  • Advocacy: working with low income individuals to represent and advance their interests before courts, administrative bodies and bureaucracies. We also engage in systemic advocacy through community lawyering.
  • Community: engaging collaboratively with communities to challenge oppression and remove the barriers that prevent people from fully participating in the issues that affect their lives.
